Project Description

Water Mill Houses: Guesthouse

Water Mill, NY

2008

When the owners of the Water Mill House determined to add a guest house to their residential complex, they turned to 1100 Architect. Our design—a glass pavilion set into the forest—offers panoramic views of the surrounding natural context, but, because of its careful placement, it also offers privacy from the other residential buildings. The design is based on the premise that well-detailed architecture can be created from the thoughtful use of off-the-shelf building products. Using a standard aluminum storefront system usually found in urban and commercial settings, 1100 Architect created this distinctive glass house for a much lower cost than it would have been using high-end-residential systems and finishes.
